As she watched the Nazis murder her father, beautiful, aristocratic Gilberte de Permont made the terrible promise that would shatter her innocence and force her to choose between her best friend, American Ann Blakely, and the man both of them loved.
From war-torn Paris to New York's chick fashion world, Ann and Gilberte would become women competing for success, fighting for the same man - and sharing a monstrous secret. One of them would realize all her dreams. And one would face the shocking consequences of obsessions raging in...The Naked Heart.
